Published by Storm King Comics, and created by John Carpenter & Sandy King, is the third issue of werewolf horror comic, “Monica Bleue” with the signature dark yet beautiful art style and movie-like narration. After the initial introduction of characters, werewolf and character development, the third issue picks up where the second one left.
After the struggle of Monica to keep the secret of werewolf from her father, the third issue has Monica and her father team up and plan to discover the trail and origin or the werewolf attacking the country side place where they’re living for now. We also see the relationship of Monica and her father becoming better and more mature now. It is a great chemistry, like seen in the movies or video games where a parent and child is the main focus of the horror story. We see Monica’s father making some adjustments for his daughter and there is indirect humor in a lot of situations in this issue without the comic creator intentionally making the characters crack a joke through dialogues. Something like a situational comedy, which is especially evident in the butcher’s shop scene. The investigative tone in some scenes is almost like Sherlock Holmes or Batman, and as the comic ends on a high note, I am sure that the excitement will keep on increasing. While there’s less gore & monster slasher horror in this one, the ‘horror’ or ‘thrill’ of chasing the trail of a monster is still scary enough as there’s always a thought in your mind about the possibility of our protagonists being attacked.
Overall, Monica Bleue #3 is a comic book that combines the beautiful storytelling, thrill of werewolf hunting and superhero-like excitement in a modern werewolf story. With lovable characters, thrilling scenarios, situational humor, and beautiful art style, there’s a lot of content for the given price. While there’s less violence in this issue, it makes for a good horror comic by giving us a taste of how it feels to track down a werewolf and also, struggling with some problems of our own. If you’re a werewolf fan, this is a story that will delight you for sure.
